The Festival

Lest we become too obsessed with the minutiae of the 1970's, here's a short film about the Festival Of Britain.

On May 3rd, 2011, it will be sixty years since the Festival opened and, in October 2011, sixty years since Churchill had the site cleared, but it remains a pivotal event in my hauntological calendar.

  1. Brilliant stuff. Let's hope there's a FOB themed week of documentaries on BBC4 in the offing.
